Track Name: That's Not How It Works - EP Mix
You see what I'm talking about
So, you ask why I won't let you in
Then you say you're not like that

You ask why they don't hang around
So, you like to talk about yourself
And push everyone away

No no, I said no no, honey, that's not how it works
No no, there's no need to say your sorries to me now

You know everybody believes you
And you've had it so easy your whole life
Hey, you don't know what you've got

Yesterday, you said you're above it
The attention you loved it, don't lie
Hey, I know how it feels like right now

No no, I said no no, honey, that's not how it works
No no, there's no need to say your sorries to me now

No no, I said no no, honey, that's not how it works
No no, there's no need to say your sorries to me now
Track Name: Turkish Chinchilla - EP Mix
Rolling high on a windy day
She follows every word I say
We’ll get out of this place someday
Live in a cabin far away

Never thought I’d make it here
But here I am, I’m making it happen
At the setting sun
In time, we’ll get yours done
When I get up
Don’t ever get down, you see

Turkish chinchilla
In my big villa
You may think it’s funny
My old loft is so sunny now

[Guitar Solo 1]

Going out in my big canoe
She follows everything I do
We’ll get out of this place someday
Live in a cabin far away

Never thought I’d make it here
But here I am, I’m making it happen
At the setting sun
In time, we’ll get yours done
When I get up
Don’t ever get down, you see

Turkish chinchilla
In my big villa
You may think it’s funny
My old loft is so sunny now

[Guitar Solo 2]

Turkish chinchilla
In my big villa
You may think it’s funny
My old loft is so sunny,

Turkish chinchilla
Cheese and vanilla
You may think it’s funny
My old loft is so sunny now
Track Name: Don't Call On Me - EP Mix
Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anything else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anyone else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't ever trust me with anything
I won't remember
Don't ever trust me with anything
Boy, you gotta fix it now
Don't call on me

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anything else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anyone else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

[Organ Solo]

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anything else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't call on me
Track Name: The Coast - EP Mix
Close my eyes
Every night
All the time, every night
Everywhere I go
Well, I never want to leave this place, I never wanna go back

[Piano Interlude]

Don’t leave now
Everyone needs someone to follow
Everywhere I go
Well, I never want to leave this place, I never wanna go back

[Synth Interlude]

I wanna
Tell you something
I’ve always liked you from the start
To be honest, I can't tell you
What I think you should know
Don't go

[Synth Interlude]

Make a wish
Every night
All the time, every night
Everywhere I go
Well, I never want to leave this place, I never wanna go back

Tell me a story
Where do you come from?
Tell me a story
Don't leave me hanging

Tell me a story
Where do you come from?
Tell me a story
Don't leave me hanging
Track Name: Candle Boy - EP Mix
All night
Every night I think about the things we did
I remember when we used to live on the edge
But now it's different 'cause we're older and the candles
Blow out in the

Clocks above
They never ticked so fast enough
Days are gone
They never went so fast enough

Candle boy
My tragedy
Never found the time
With the possibilities

Seems like
All the years we knew each other now are gone
I can't make out anything that's happened then
Our bodies grow old but our minds are very young
Gazing at the

Clocks above
They never ticked so fast enough
Days are gone
They never went so fast enough

Candle boy
My tragedy
Never found the time
With the possibilities
Track Name: Monday Morning - EP Mix
Never felt so far away
It's time to leave this town
But if I will return
You won't see anything

It's been a nice time
But it's time for me to leave
I'm packing all my bags
And then I'll be on my way, honey

Monday morning, out the door
Tuesday morning, out to shore
Wednesday morning, there'll be no more of me

Every time I wake up now
I feel something so real
The room is spinning round
It's spinning out of control

I can't sleep anymore
'Cause it's been too long and been too late for me
I'm walking out the door
And then I'll be on my way, honey

Monday morning, making tea
Tuesday morning, out to sea
Wednesday morning, you won't see me again

[Organ Solo]

We used to skip along all the rain
Why'd you need a reason for the things you say?
I'm not sure if I can ease the pain
We all know what's coming so why do we still live in fear?

Monday morning, out the door
Tuesday morning, out to shore
Wednesday morning, there'll be no more of me

Monday morning, leaving home
Tuesday morning, on my own
Wednesday morning, you should've known by now
